A ninety five year old Old Boy has thrown down a challenge to the SBHS community by offering to donate $10,000 to the School’s capital works program if ten old boys match his gift.

John Fraser OAM (1933) has kicked off the SBHS 10-4-10 Challenge with a spirited reminder of the dedication and generosity of the first generation of High Boys.

He’ll donate $10,000 immediately and another $10,000 if “younger” Old Boys meet the challenge target.

“I just feel so strongly about the potential of the School and its special heritage that I had to do what I could to make a difference for the future generations of students”, Mr Fraser said.

John was a dedicated rifle shooter in his days at school and was a fellow rifle team member with Roden Cutler. He continues to support rifle shooting and is often seen at rifle shooting and other school functions.

“My message to every Old Boy is, let’s make this a target to reach as soon as possible. If you know someone who can take the pledge for $10,000, I’m ready to match them and nine others. The 10-4-10 Challenge is on”, Mr Fraser added.
The School’s building fund, which currently stands at over $800,000, will fund a multi-purpose centre to meet the needs created by the redevelopment of the School’s library.

To meet John’s challenge, and make a tax deductible donation to the SBHS Building Fund, download the donor form and post it in or call the Principal, Dr Kim Jaggar on (02) 9361 6910 ext 114.
